Published the 100th Edition

This is a big deal for me.

The newsletter started as just a weekend side project, where I used to send a bunch of links to my friends.

The 1st edition was published back in September 2019, and this Sunday I sent out the 100th edition, without missing a single week!

I never had any output goals for the newsletter, which is why never thought of monetization.

It is and always will be a passion project.

But always had input goals -

  • Quality content that adds value to the reader.
  • Keeps me excited about learning, researching, and writing.
  • Gives me new ideas I can work on, sort of like a playground for my creative expression.

A couple of info products have spun out of The Wisdom Project, which have made me some money.

I continue to learn and iterate every week. I've experimented with the format and the content a lot in this period.

Learned a lot about writing newsletters as well.

Applying those learnings to my other newsletter - Listen Up IH, which is going well as well.

To celebrate 100 weeks of wisdom, I'm giving away all my info products for free this week.
